Goetsch named to All-Section 6A first team

Alexandria’s Sam Goetsch finished as the top goaltender in the section field when the final 6A reports were released earlier this week.

Goetsch was second in minutes played (1,378.8) and gave the Cardinals a chance to win every time out. His 92.2 save percentage was tops in the section and his 1.8 goals against average was second behind only Mitch Bauer of Prairie Centre, who finished with a 1.7 goals against average in 306 minutes.

Goetsch had an impressive defense in front of him and two of those defensemen made up the entire Section 6A second team. Junior Christian Canavati and senior Kevin Finley both earned all-second team honors, while senior forward Brady Bast and junior defenseman Parker Revering were honorable-mention selections.

Bast led the team in scoring with 25 points on 13 goals and 12 assists. Canavati and Finley were right behind him with 22 and 19 points, respectively.
